Abstract

Particles are used to simulate phenomena spanning twenty orders of magnitude, from the folding of proteins to the formation of our universe. I distinguish particle methods for the discretisation of continuum conservation laws and particle models of complex systems. In this talk, [...]

Abstract

The possibility to use a Lagrangian frame to solve problems with large time-steps was successfully explored previously by the authors for the solution of homogeneous incompressible fluids and also for solving multi-fluid problems [28-30]. The strategy used by the authors was named [...]

Abstract

Particle Methods are those in which the problem is represented by a discrete number of particles. Each particle moves accordingly with its own mass and the external/internal forces applied [...]

Abstract

An advancing front technique for filling space with arbitrary, separated objects has been developed. The input required consists of the specification of the desired object type, the mean [...]

Abstract

In this paper, we present a computational algorithm for solving an important practical problem, namely, the thermoplastic polymer melting under fire conditions. We propose here a technique [...]

Abstract

In this work a stabilized mixed formulation for the solution of non-linear solid mechanics problems in nearly-incompressible conditions is presented. In order to deal with high material deformation, an implicit Material Point [...]

Abstract

A methodology to integrate geographical information system (GIS) data with large-scale pedestrian simulations has been developed. Advances in automatic [...]

Abstract

Multifluids are those fluids in which their physical properties (viscosity or density) vary internally and abruptly forming internal interfaces that introduce a large nonlinearity in the [...]

Abstract

In this work, we propose a lattice-particle approach to study ionic diffusion across graphite electrodes. In our approach, we generate virtual representative volume elements (RVE) of the electrode material based on its composition, i.e., active particles, carbon additives, and binder. [...]

International Journal of Numerical Methods for Calculation and Design in Engineering (RIMNI) contributes to the spread of theoretical advances and practical applications of numerical methods in engineering [...]
